Trips to the zoo


Mitch and I went to the zoo today since I had the day off from work. It was not crowded at all and we got to see lots of animals and even got a pretty decent self-portrait!


Hanging out in a onesie


Mitch has a book that has different animal masks but he doesn't quite understand it-he opens a page to a new animal and then holds the book up and makes the animal sound-he doesn't realize you're supposed to turn the book around to show everyone else what animal you are. Needless to say, he's pretty much always the frog.


Mitch and dad had a playdate with Elliot and Josh-lucky Josh got to read the pop-up book that has most of the flaps missing since they've been pulled off.


We had some beautiful weather over the past few weeks and finally activated our zoo membership that Mitch got for his birthday. Here we are having a snack.



Looking at the turtles...the beginning of the (probably never ending) "don't knock on the glass"

Naked pics, etc.


Mitch playing with his space shuttle before bath time.


I think Charlotte may have been a bit confused.





Mitch is starting to LOVE stuffed animals, he needs at least 2 in order to go to sleep. Here he was snuggling a little before nap time.



Mitch decided he just wanted to wear his hat around the house the other day; here we are reading books.


Mitch has loved these spray bottles since he was little-we use them to squirt the cats when they're misbehaving. Luckily, he hasn't quite figured out how they work so he just points them at the cats and says "ss.....ss....ss" Or he chews on them (see above).

Not much exciting...


So, I made a great resolution to post more pictures but I sort of forgot that means we will need to TAKE more pictures. So, this week, not too much exciting happened. Here are some pics of Mitch playing with his Winnie the Pooh airplane (thanks Aunt Laura & Uncle Dale!).



He likes to start the propeller just so he can stop it.

Since I don't have too many pictures I'll give a little more info about what's going on with Mitch. He talks a lot, has a lot of words but many sound the same. Here are some examples:
ba ba....could mean blueberries, belly button or penis (depending on the context)
da dow...could mean doggie, sticker, sit down
ra ra...could mean broccoli or his stuffed lion
ni ni...could mean night-night or lotion (with this one he rubs his hands on his legs)
wa wa...could mean wash hands, waffle and is sometimes hard to distinguish from the above "ra ra"
I know there are more but I can't think of them right now. He also makes lots of animal sounds but won't say the actual animal except for dog and owl.
Hopefully I'll have some more pics next week-at least I'm posting! :)

February resolutions

So, I am going to try to be better about blogging, goal is for a new post every week (we'll see how long I can keep up!) Here is a picture of Mitch trying on Matt's slippers (and sweeping at the same time)


Old wrapping paper tubes can make some of the best toys!



Bathtime fun!
